Reform Athletica is a boutique fitness studio inspired by the vibrant fitness scenes of New York, London and LA. Located in Dubai’s Jumeirah 1 community – the studio is located perfectly between the urban city bustle and Dubai’s beautiful beaches.
Reform Athletica stands for embracing fitness at all stages of life as part of a regular wellness maintenance routine. We deliver fun and challenging workouts in a motivating environment with small class sizes, so we can focus on every individual. The owners, inspired by their personal experiences and seeing the benefits of regular Pilates and TRX exercise, decided to open their own studio designed to reflect their vision of the ideal workout space. Our mission has been to create a space that represents and blends all of our core principles: environmentally friendly, culturally enriching and physically rewarding.
We are boutique; we are not a gym, and we are not priced like a gym. Our classes are capped at 10 people, depending on the class. We have seven signature classes: The Reform Method, MicroForm, TRX Athletica, TRX Sculpt, KettleForm, Yoga and Deep Stretch. Each of our classes are designed to complement one another; between low-intensity, high-intensity, stretching, strength and conditioning - we have it covered. Our classes are 45-50 minutes long and we do not distinguish between skill levels; beginners and advanced participants are all equally welcome and no prior experience is required for any class. Our instructors will modify exercises or demonstrate alternatives to ensure that you get the most out of your session, no matter your gender or level of experience.
Our studio has been custom made; it is a cross between an intimate fitness studio and an art gallery. We’ve partnered with local galleries to showcase the very latest talent in the local art scene, as well as displaying some of our own art collections. Our partnerships are with local home-grown brands that share the same passion and have the same vision of giving back to the community, making a difference and raising environmental awareness in the region.
Upon entering Reform Athletica, you’ll notice we’ve tried to create a space that truly feels like home. The owners, having a long-time passion for art and culture have collected art pieces from around the world for the studio, giving the space a unique flair. There is a story behind every piece – whether it was a personal connection they had that drew them to add it to their collection, or its interpretation is in alignment with our core values as a studio. Whether the former or the latter, each piece is beautiful– from the inside out.
Sustainability and going green in as many areas as we can is one our main core values as a studio. We are plastic-free, so there are no plastic cups, bottles or bags and any bottles offered will be fully recyclable. We have S’well bottles on offer, encouraging our clients to participate in our drive to minimise single-use plastic consumption and use our filtered water for refills. These efforts have resulted in our studio being awarded the badge of “Ocean Champion”, the highest level of the Oceanic Standard in recognition of our efforts to adopt a holistic approach to sustainable operating practices with a strong focus on eliminating single-use plastic.
At Reform Athletica, we offer seven signature classes; each carefully developed by our team of head trainers to ensure all your training bases are covered. Experience the burn from our spin on the Lagree method, strength classes with bursts of HIIT and conditioning, as well as the calming vibes from our yoga and restorative deep stretch sessions.
Come in at least 15 minutes early to change and familiarise yourself with the space, changing rooms and studios. Let your trainer know if you’re new of any conditions or injuries you have or if you’re pregnant. Bring your Reform Athletica water bottle to class. Water points are available in the studios to fill your bottle. For those of you who don’t have a bottle with them, they are available to purchase at the reception. Please note that for safety reasons, you will not be admitted to class if you do not complete the induction prior to your first class.
